. >> obama is a gifted speaker. he has been on the national stage for many years. experienceed debater. he has done the debates before. this is mitt's first time on this stage. >> romney campaign was left to slap itself in the forehead when governor chris christie apparently didn't get the expectations memo. >> wednesday night is the restart of the campaign, i think you will see the numbers start to move right back in the other direction. thursday morning, the entire narrative of the race will change. >> reporter: in truth, debates rarely move polls in a significant ways. one notable exception was in 2000. when -- >> that's what a governor gets to do. >> dismissive al gore threw away a five-point lead in the course of three debates. >> romney advisors are just hoping for a solid performance. no knock-outs on wednesday night. >> i don't think one event is going to make or break this campaign. >> romney advisors told me they don't expect that they could level knock-out blow against president obama. the skilled debaters such as he is. always playing the expectation game. bret? >> bret: john,
and that means offering his own way ahead and, really explaining why the next four years under president obama will be disastrous, shouldn't focus on the last four years, focus on the next four years and clear choice, and really lay out what four more years of obama policies, in terms of debt and, no economic growth and in terms of a failed foreign policy, would look like, and lay out the romney alternative, and, i think he needs to go right at obama. my advice, ignore jim lehr, and, like i do with juan williams... ignore the question and, do not answer jim lehr, speak to obama in the second person, you have failed and here's what we can do differently, to make it a sharp contrast. >> chris: interestingly enough, liz, when i talked to congressman ryan, about the fact that romney needs a clear victory, because of the state of the polls, he pushed back, very much against that. does he need a clear victory? >> yes. he does, i mean, i think there is universal consensus he has to shake up the trajectory of his race and a safe performance will not probably be enough at this point. having said that,
with barack obama, number one. and that what mitt romney has to do is convince people that four years from now a mitt romney presidency will be better for their personal lives. they understand on the likability question of which the president beats mitt romney so handily, they're not about to convince all these people suddenly to turn around and say, oh, we like mitt romney more than we like president obama. what they're going to try and do is say you like him enough and he can do the job and he's better able to fix things. so he's not going to try and be bill clinton here, i feel your pain. but what he's going to try to do is say i'm focused on your concerns. >> can a debate like tonight's debate really change the direction of this campaign? >> i think it can accelerate or decrease momentum one way or another. and i went back and looked at 2004 for example when you had john kerry and george bush. in sort of late september bush was ahead of kerry by about seven points. after the first debate it was a two-point margin because john kerry did very well. then george w. bush came back and did bette
energy and passion for two years fighting for obama care instead of fighting for jobs for the american people. it has killed jobs. and the best course for health care is to do what we did in my state. craft a plan at the state level that fits the needs of the state and then let's focus on getting the costs down for people. >> mitt romney several times taking the fight to president obama. rarely did president obama take the fight to mitt romney. >> he wouldn't really engage with mitt romney. mitt romney would take him on on every issue, including the question of health care in massachusetts. you know, he didn't back away from it. to me, what's interesting about mitt romney this evening is that he's a very different mitt romney from the one we all watched during the primaries, the one we watched during the primaries was combative very often, without smiling, sometimes awkward, you know, tonight i think he sort of had it all together, focused on the president -- >> you agree his best debate performance? >> absolutely. >> i think mitt romney rose to a moment tonight, in a way frankly surpr
, the president was rusty. hasn't done this in four years. that's not an excuse as james said earlier. the obama campaign says that mitt romney doesn't care about your job or your community. we didn't hear anything like that from the president. romney at least held his own on the big questions of the economy and role of government. if you are the challenger and hold your own, you walk off the stage happy. >> critics of the president say he's two proffesorial. i think they'll say that tonight. >> and more. we have a horse race. mitt romney's performance was head and shoulders than anything we've seen before. >> you think this was his best debate? >> he drove this debate far more than anyone else imagined. mitt romney seized upon the opportunity and set the standard for it i think the president -- i didn't think he was rusty, as i don't think anybody has ever spoken to him like that over the last four years, and i think he found it not only surprising, but offensive. looked like he was angry at time. i think overall, you have to say -- to my surprise, i had not expected this. i think mitt romney w
. president obama is a very gifted speaker. the man has been on the national stage for many years. he is an experienced debater. he has done these kinds of debates before. this is mitt's first time on this kind of a stage. >> chris: there were 23 debates during the primarys. >> people are going to see who is mitt romney and what kind of president is he going to be and what are the choices i have. that is what matters in this particular debate and all of the debates which is i know what president obama has done and all of the empty promises and broken promises and know about the ugly stagnant economy. what is mitt romney and paul ryan offering to get us back on track? and i think that is what we will get out of wednesday and if we get that out of wednesday then the country understands the choice they have to make. >> chris: i understand that governor romney plans to make a major foreign policy speech in the next few days. do the two of you think that the president has engaged in a coverup in his and the administration's escaped explanation of what happened at the u.s. consulate in beng
why the next four years under president obama would be disasterrous. shouldn't focus on the last four years. focus on next four years and what four more years of obama policy would look like and lay out romney alternative. and i think he needs to go right at obama. my main advice would be ignore the moderator. sort of like juan does with you. when one argues with me and ignores all your questions around all that. he has to take do not get -- do not answer jim lehrer. go after president obama and speak to him in the second person and say you have failed unfortunately and here is what we can do differently and make it a sharp contrast. >> chris: interestingly enough, liz, when i talked to congressman ryan about the fact that romney needs a clear victory because of the state of the polls he pushed back against that. does he need a clear victory? >> he does. i think there is universal consensus that he has to do something to shake up the trajectory of the race and a safe performance probably isn't going to be enough at this point. having said that i think it might not be that hard for rom
to run against president bush, he should have ran four years ago. >> four years ago, barack obama and john mccain faced off in a first debate that was nearly canceled when the republican suspended his campaign because of the meltdown on wall street. the day of their second debate, the stock market dropped 500 points. >> now the troubles are spreading. the market took another dive today, and there are some big names now involved. >> reporter: the day of the third debate, the stock market dropped over 300 points. >> fear that the country could be entering in one of the most serious recessions in decades, led by wall street's 700-point sell-off. >> now four years later, the president who faced john mccain in those debates and beat him faces his new republican challenger for the first time. >> i'm looking forward to head to head. >> an mirror image of '08, a campaign is chaotic mash. new issues, new controversies, every day. the polls are bad for romney and good for obama in the swing states. but the national numbers are as tight as they get. the primaries are over, the conventions ar
debate that barack obama had was four years ago. and the people he's used to sparring with are reporters. >> how did he prepare? how did the president prepare for this? >> we got 45 minutes in before we got a ryan budget mentioned. mitt romney made the choice to put ryan on the ticket. when we look at where the polls started to separate before the convention, right around when ryan was put on the ticket. when do the numbers on medicare and the polling start to go upside down for the republicans? when ryan is put on the ticket. yet we get 45 minutes through the debate before paul ryan is mentioned. he's the incarnation of the modern republican party which will inherit the power that you give to mitt romney since they will be governing from the house most likely. that is the key thing to remind people there is a governing of the republican party that already exists. it's like nailing gel oto the wall. no. you are tied to an actual institutional govern body which actually has a record, which actually is going to propose and vote for things that you actually put on your ticket. they are you
. i was a 23-year coal miner for many years. barack obama is wanting to do away with coal. i want to see mitt romney come back to my area and talk about call. we have a lot of people down here suffering because barack obama has shut down the coal business. i am a christian voters. i like to take the bible and lay it down and look at it and see which president i would like to vote for. i cannot find anything in the bible that i can vote for for barack obama. he does not have anything i can vote for him more. you turn over to romans chapter 1 and it talks about homosexuality and is an abomination of god. the two exodus' chapter 20 it talks about not killing babies. he is proud of it. there is no way a christian voters can vote for barack obama. host: some of the issues you just discussed were not discussed last night, or they? caller: they have been discussed in the past. i know mitt romney says he is against the homosexuality and will not vote for gay marriage. that is another thing he is against -- do not go in debt. when you become a debtor, you are a slave to whoever you borrowe
and see what we can find. this is what the country looked like in 2009. barack obama's first full year in office. every state that looks brown out here is a state where they were losing jobs at the time. some of them very bad. look at ohio over here. 10.6% unemployment. gradually over the next few years jobs come in education and health care and business services and retail. every state that is lighter in color where they are no longer losing jobs or, in some cases, gaining jobs. ohio, 7.2% unemployment now. that is better than the national average. the bureau of labor statistics says to make that happen, we, indeed, had to create a lot of jobs. how many? by their count? 4.4 million so far. but here is what is not mentioned much. 4.3 million were lost during the bad days. so the net gain is only about 125,000 and that falls short of the president's claim that he created 5 million jobs. it's just a little bit too much of a stretch. we have to call that claim false. even though many democrats will say in a heartbeat, look. he inherited a bad economy from george bush. many voters agree wi
us, diana. >>> six in ten asian american voters voted for president obama in 2008, but this year with the economy front and center, some are reconsidering. so if just a small percent of the country's asian population go with governor mitt romney, could they actually swing the election? it depends on which state wii talking about. msnbc's richard lui has more from the critical swing state of virginia. >> i just don't know who's going to be able to kind of get to that middle ground, when the time comes. >> reporter: yet his vote could count most. it's because he is in virginia, one of a hand full of states up for grabs in the election. and as is said, as swing states go, so goes the election. 100% of them have been negative. >> reporter: in haresh's case, he voted for president obama in 2008, the first year a democrat won virginia since 1964. another reason his vote is valuable to candidate, he's asian american, and because of that, four times more likely to be an undecided voter, according to a new study. that group also makes campaign donations at a rate only second to whites. >>
in five years that barack obama and mitt romney are going to be face-to-face in what the local newspaper is headlining as the duel in denver. joining me now for our daily fix, chris cizilla, msnbc contributor and managing editor of post politics.com. first of all, this, the big face-off, let's talk about the state of the race. we have new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll numbers showing a slight tightening in the race. fou looks as though mitt romney is in the national polls slightly narrowing the gap. other problems within those numbers, problems for romney. >> yeah. i mean first of all let me say i love duel in denver. i'm a big fan of that one. i think andrea, look, last week there was a ton of polling both in swing states and nationally that i think caught barack obama sort of at the apex of the bounce he had received post-convention and post a couple bad weeks for mitt romney and mitt romney at the nader of where he could possibly be in a race where you have the country as divided as it is. the fact that things are moving back towards at the national level, 49/46, i think should
? >> let me give you the answer. first of all, for two years, president obama cut support of u.s. assistance for democracy and civil society in egypt, so those who went to tahrir square saw that the united states wasn't on their side. that was a mistake. two, when the revolt began, joe biden said that mubarak was a democrat. the secretary of state said we're with him and he's a reformer. by the time the u.s. took its position, the demonstrators had been in tahrir square for days, there had been police crackdowns and when we said it was time for mubarak to go, the the reformers had been begun to be crowded out by extremist elements. yes, there's a big difference between anticipating and leading versus not leading, reacting, cutting our traditional support for democracy. that's the record of president obama and that contributed to the mess. >> so, you're saying he should have pushed mubarak out, but done it differently or he shouldn't have done that? >> the people in a country, reagan once said that we should support the march of freedom, but we can't determine its pace. the peop
revenues from romney's tax proposal would cost $4.8 "t," trillion, over ten years. the obama campaign has already come out with an ad hitting romney on his $5 trillion lie. i'm joined tonight by david k. johnston, pulitzer prize winning columnist and author of "the fine print: how big companies use plain english to rob you blind." david k., glad to have you with us tonight. >> thank you, ed. >> after last night, do you have a better grip, a better idea of what romney's tax plan is all about? >> no, because he's never been clear about it. as you showed, he's, on the one hand, saying i'll cut everybody's rates 20% which works out over the next 10 years to about $5 trillion. and he says i'll maintain current rates. now, if he's going to not have a $5 trillion tax cut it imply, he sort of hinted at this last night, that he's going take away the deductions you are. he's not going to succeed in reducing the problem by getting rid of big bird, the money to pbs isn't even chicken feed much less big bird feed. the only other project of any size he's identified is amtrak, $1.4 billion a year. we're
, which will pump $400 million to $450 million into the race like four years ago. obama here, romney here, outside groups on behalf of romney evening it up, and labor comes in like this. the president will out spend mitt romney. lou: when you talk about the gorilla there, it's not just union money, but ground forces going to work. are you satisfied that governor romney has a sufficient ground force ready to meet what will be a daunting ground operation on the part of the president obama? >> well, i don't know state-by-state, but i have talked to some of the people involved in some of these states who are old political hands and know what's going on. in ohio, they are already blowing through the 2004 bush ground game metrics with one exception -- voter registration. you have -- neither party's done a good job on registration this year. yeah, wisconsin, ohio, virginia, i mean, all the reports you hear from people paying close tension to it is that the ground game is big, massive, and strong on the republican side, and let's be honest, it's going to be big and massive on the democratic side
on me. for at least a few years now, we have been told how president obama is just alienating wall street. billionaires have got it so rough. they are going to turn against him to make sure president obama is not reelected. now that the election is just 35 days away and president obama, you got to admit looks pretty strong in the polls, some of these billionaires are beginning to whine a little bit. they don't like the environment of what's happening. here's sam zell, listen to this. >> how the, quote, 1% or the 10%, the top earners moved ahead of everybody. i wonder if there's any correlation between while they were moving ahead, the rest of the government was subsidizing, subsidizing more and more people. i think they are disincentive vised by if you don't pay for health care, that's another thing you don't have to worry about. >> he sounds like he could be sitting at the mitt romney fundraiser. his disdain of the 47% is the same as mitt romney's. he's not the only algart complaining. leon cooperman, this hedge fund manager and former obama supporter, said this, you know, the lar
of business no matter how big you get. >> bill: he took money. >> just like barack obama did four years ago. >> bill: lou dobbs, everybody. and that's the fairest assessment that you will get anywhere in the media right here on the factor. directly ahead, vicious attack on a california couple who put out a romney sign on their front lawn. harold with details. he has talked to the couple. body language takes a look at the debate this week. that should be interesting. those reports after these messages. ooho romney once again using a working person. apparently the garbage collector for the romney household in san diego not a big fan of the governor's. >> my name is richard hayes. and i pick up mitt romney's trash. invisible people. you know, he doesn't realize, you know, 16 tons by hand. that takes a toll on your body. when i'm 55, 60 years old i know my body is going to be broke down and romney doesn't care about that. >> bill: a nasty situation involving a romney campaign sign also in california. here now fox news anchor geraldo rivera. so richard is mad at romney, why? >> well, richard hay
for two years fighting for obama care. >> reporter: the president made his points in a slower, laid back manner, often appearing disengaged. it's not that he didn't try to rip apart romney's economic plan. >> that kind of top down economics where folks at the top are doing well so the average person making $3 million is getting a $250,000 tax break while middle class families are burdened further -- >> reporter: romney was determined to go toe to toe. >> virtually everything he said about my tax plan sin accurate. if the tax plan he described were a tax plan i was asked to support, i'd say absolutely not. >> reporter: the president did get digs in. >> for 18 months he's been running on this tax plan. and now, five weeks before the election, he's saying that his big bold idea is never mind. >> reporter: but he also showed flashes of the kind of testiness sources in both camps feared from the candidates, except obama's was directed at the moderator, not romney. >> the last point i'd make before -- >> your two minutes is up. >> i think i had five seconds before you interrupted me, was -- >>
. where we've been as a country over the past four years. and what a second term obama administration would look like. and what it would do for middle class americans all over this country. i think we achieved that. i think what we didn't expect is for that mitt romney to show up. i know mitt romney is an aggressive debater, a great debater, in his own words. was one of the things he used as a credential to becoming the republican nominee. we didn't expect him to be aggressively dishonest last night. >> was the president taken by the number of lies? >> well, you know, i think that, you know, today looking back at last night, you saw what the president did on the stump today. called mitt romney out for what he did last night. not just about his $5 trillion tax cut but a number of other things. and, you know, we'll continue doing that. as i was listening to your piece coming into me, and you talked about our ad. we went on the air today. we're going to continue doing it pointing out all the things mitt romney said last night that are basically not true. it's almost as
than the unemployment rate when barack obama took office in 2009 of january of that year right out of the bat. today where's the dow? the dow-jones industrial average hit a five-year high. stocks are doing better than they were before the economic crash of 2008. more people are working today than when president obama was inaugurated. you know, when they were having the secret meeting about how they were going to make him fail. it's not all sunshine and roses out there. we'll admit that. the jobs situation in america has improved under president obama's watch. now of course unless you are a hard core right winger. according to them, these unemployment numbers, you know what they are? they are a conspiracy. they're a conspiracy to re-elect the president of the united states. >> there is widespread mistrust of this report and these numbers because there are clear contradictions. >> i guarantee when this is revised the unemployment rate would be back above 8%. >> oh, how convenient that the rate drops below 8% for the first time in 43 months five weeks before an election. >> i told you
years. now it's come back to bite them. they hate it. they can't stand it. it's success under obama. and if it works for them, well, it's the truth. if it works against them you know what it is? a conspiracy, a lie. you know what it is? it is pathetic. you want a real conspiracy? i'm going to give you a real conspiracy here tonight. an entire political party in washington, d.c. you know this. has spent nearly four years making sure no legislative action was taken on jobs. when president obama approached them with solutions to get people back to work, they rejected them immediately, said no. they even said in public, their number one goal was to make barack obama a one-term president. when they executed this strategy, what did they do? they damaged the country. do you call that economic patriotism? i don't. this is what a job growth has looked like over the past three years. now take a look at what happens when we see these split between the private sector jobs and the public sector jobs. it's pretty obvious. the losses in the public sector, what were they? a drag on job growth. we l
've seen that we aren't better off after four years of the obama economy. it's not working. the stimulus failed. the health care is -- bill is now increasing our premiums. you just have a report that i believe you all and others have reported on today that shows that 27 million americans will still be uninsured even with the trillions and trillions of dollars of costs in obama care. plus, more people will be out of work because of the small business tax increases from obama care, so what mitt romney is going to talk about is appeal to how we can do so much better. we need to invest in small businesses in latinos and women and, you know, people who are coming to this country often are starting small businesses, and that's -- we can't be putting new taxes on those small businesses, and we need to have new health care. >> is he going to get -- >> will also help -- >> i'm sorry. is he going to be more specific on what type of loopholes he is talking about, exemptions, to offset these tax cuts that he is proposed to grow the economy. is he going to provide more specifics? >>. >> when presiden
, at least i know within four years we will still have a president. with obama, i am not so certain. i don't feel that we are united as we the people anymore. with romney, we have that option. that is all i have to say. >> had already made up your mind who you were going to vote for? >> no, i am completely open- minded still. just by looking and seeing how things are going, i am leaning a little bit more toward romney at the moment. >> this is sophia from twitter. -- so fantastic to see governor romney and president obama being so social and courteous. all of our social media component and other components about the debates have been put together in our debate hub. first and foremost, you can see the responses to questions, the specific questions that were asked tonight by the moderator. you can click the question and see the video responses and you can also use the site to make clips of sections of the debate and send those clips be a social media or whatever to other people to share. that is all at our debate hub at c-span.org. let's go to nicole in richmond, virginia. she is calling on
meant to say the last 10 years, and it came out wrong. this is fodder for the obama campaign. it will not change, i do not think, in a huge way, the course of events, buthere is no question the obama campaign folks, every time biden is out there, they are nervous about what he is going to say, how it comes out. they would prefer to have barack obama cleaning up barack obama this week, rather than joe biden cleaning up barack obama. >> what do you think? the vice presidential debate is coming up. >> it just so happens joe biden and paul ryan respect each other and get along well. those two were the ones that had allhe protestants. i think this will be a fun debate, and enjoyable debate. joe biden has a good sense of humor. you are not going to see him paint barack obama in his debate. >> i hope it is more interesting. yes, there were 50 million people calling the first debate, and the question i have is, for how long? i was sitting there thinking, ok, obama did not show up to play, and this is unbelievably borig. if i did n havto do this for a living, i would turn on a show i
camp call the obama hug. i've been boot camping for five years. >> >> jennifer: when they greet each other? >> rhetorically speaking, he always hugs his opponent. he always says something nice. when jon huntsman got into the race for president obama said he was a great advocate for the country as an ambassador for china. we're really not so different. abraham lincoln who campaigned on don't change horses in the middle of the stream. obama is saying we're both going in the same direction. partisans hate it. but independents love it and that's why his support went up among independents. that's why people still believe that obama leads in the category of who cares about the problems that people like me -- that's why the medicaid moms are going to trust barack obama. >> jennifer: let me play you quickly a sound byte from that -- democrats passing obama care. take a quick listen. >> romney: instead of bringing america together and having a discussion on this important topic, you pushed through something that you and
